New routes and re-equipments at Crestes de Conill - South

Several very pleasant new routes have recently been added to the left-hand side of Crestes de Conill - South (Pages 68-69 in Lleida Climbs 2). In addition, two older climbs on this part of the crag, Sputnik and Sbutnik (on which the old hangers were in very poor condition) have been re-equipped.

Tres Ponts — route closures

UK climber Steve Crowe (a regular visitor to Catalunya) has informed us that, due to the presence of a rare species of plant, three of the classic hard routes in Tres Ponts have been 'banned' by the authorities. These are: El Segre (8a), Els Inconformistes (8a+) and L'Alternativa (8a+).
